Get out your tiara…wait no! It’s not that day. It is Western Monarch Day. It is a day to celebrate the Western Monarch butterfly.

It can be spread on toast or put into the center of pastries or other baked goods. I don’t know about you but I have been known to consume it simply with a spoon or finger! Don’t laugh!

I hope you had positive results in our little quiz! Most city’s television stations have not just one weatherperson like in the past, but highly trained meteorologist’s that form a weather team.
